Method

  1. Rinse the lentils, then put them in a pan and cover generously with water. Bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for 25-30 mins until tender. Drain well and leave to cool. Put the shallot in a bowl with the mustard, vinegar and seasoning. Mix well and whisk in the oil.
  2. Put the eggs into a small pan and cover with water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 3 mins. Cool quickly under running cold water and peel off the shells. Put in a bowl of cold water until ready to serve.
  3. Stir the dill into the dressing and pour it over the lentils. Spoon onto 6 plates, then halve the eggs and put one half on each plate with two slices of smoked salmon. Sprinkle with black pepper, scatter over a few dill fronds and serve.

I had bought a big bag of Puy green lentils and needed inspiration for eatting a healthy but delicious meal. Very easy to make and salad stores in fridge for days. Would definately use this recipe for starters when entertaining friends.
